Your S2S Mentor is a very important person in your first year. They are fellow students who will show you around, organise social events and answer any questions you may have (no matter how small!). In order to assign you to a mentor group for your course, we need your permission to share your name and TCD email address with your mentor. If you would like to opt-out of mentoring, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
ID Card Collection
Once your registration is complete you will be eligible for a Trinity College Dublin student ID card (TCard). To avail of a TCard you need to log in to the TCard Portal using your Trinity username and password and follow the instructions to upload a photo. Once the photo has been uploaded your card will be printed and you will be emailed an appointment time to collect it.
Note: Please ensure when logging in to the Tcard portal that you are using your username rather than your student ID number or email address.
You will collect your ID card at the end of your S2S Mentor Tour. ID Card collection will be taking place until the 20th September in the Exam Hall. You need to bring confirmation of registration (a screenshot will do) and photo ID to collect your ID card.
Trinity Access Programmes students, international students, mature students and students with disabilities all have extra information they need before starting with us in September.
